Swim Course
The swim courses are as described on the web site map. The swim is a beach start. The course is counter-clockwise. Swimmers exit the water between the lime green "nineteen" buoys on the shore and have a short run to the transition zone.

For the Olympic distance swim, participants do 3x of a counter-clockwise 500m loop, exiting the water to make the ‘turn’ on the beach and head back out onto the course at the end of each of the first and second loops.

Cycle Courses
Olympic Tri/Du- 4 Loops on the Parkway
Sprint Tri/Du - 2 loops on the Parkway
Super Sprint/Try A Tri - 1 loop on the Parkway

Run Courses
The run is unique to an in-city run as it is cross country in nature. But don’t be nervous - it’s gentle and grassy. The route is a shared one, so please be courteous to your fellow competitors. There is a water station on the pier near the turn. The run distances are travelled on the same out course (some just a little further than others) and that turns around at each respective turning point and comes back on the same course as:

3km = 1 Loop (out and back to 1.5 km) - Try A Tri final run
5km = 2 Loops (out and back to 1.25 km) - Super Sprint Tri, Sprint Tri, and first Olympic Du Run
10km = 4 Loops (of 1.25 km) - Olympic Distance Tri & Duathlon final run

To comply with existing pathway rules of use, the cycle portion of the triathlon & duathlon from the T-Zone to the Ottawa River Parkway will not be timed and will not be included in the final finish time. Participants are advised that while on the pathway, the 'normal' rules of pathway use apply to your cycling - including traveling at 20Km per hour or less, not use using aero bars, and cycling to the right of the centre line. Cyclists who fail to comply with these requirements will be disqualified by event officials.
